With Your Help,

We Can Help.

Make a Difference

Volunteer and Get Involved

Volunteer Application

Without New Life Day Center, the homeless would have limited or no shelter options during the daytime hours. This means no breakfast, no lockers, and no connection to resources within the city of Lexington. Every day, at least 150 homeless would be on the streets of Lexington during the daytime hours. Because of our community partners, and individuals like you, we are changing lives.

Join us in the effort to change the landscape of the homeless population in our city. We are grateful for every type of involvement and each donation we receive. Whether you are a corporation with services or in-kind donations or an individual who wants to serve with their time and talents, we welcome you to partner with us in our mission.

Host a Supply Drive

The New Life Day Center is able to provide so many needed supplies and services to our clients directly due to the generosity of individuals, companies, organizations, churches, and community groups who conduct supply drives to gather our most-used items. If you would like to conduct a supply drive to benefit our clients, please refer to the list of in-kind donations listed on the “Our Partners” tab. Additionally, we have created Amazon and Target wish-lists if you would like to conduct a virtual supply drive.
